Want to be one of the first to see the SW Roxbury plan?

Instead of a standalone meeting, SDOT is coming to tomorrow night’s Westwood-Roxhill-Arbor Heights Community Council to announce the plan for making SW Roxbury safer, after 223 crashes left 112 people hurt just in the past three years.

At two meetings last year – which we covered, on July 31st and on August 4th – SDOT rolled out a proposal including rechannelization between 17th and 35th and a mix of changes east of there. One more round of community consultation, focused on Roxbury businesses, was due to follow that.

Tomorrow’s meeting is at 6:15 pm at the Southwest Branch Library (35th/Henderson); the Roxbury presentation is set for 6:30; all are welcome.

    This is super exciting! It’s basically the first thing we tackled when we sent a letter along with HPAC and NHUAC not so much asking as demanding that SDOT see what they can do to make Roxbury safe.
    These plans are **FINAL** and will be implemented in a few months.
    SDOT has held many heavily advertised meetings for over ONE YEAR on this, with feedback from hundreds of local residents and businesses. The local news media, from the West Seattle Blog, the West Seattle Herald, the Seattle Times, as well as KING, KIRO, and KOMO TV news have all covered the process. It’s been incredible to watch, and no one will be surprised by whatever outcome unless they’ve been in a cave through all of 2014.

Sorry, comment time is over.
